HC Deb 06 July 1983 vol 45 cc91-2W
Mr. Proctor

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what is the total level of aid committed to Zimbabwe since April 1980; how much of this has been disbursed so far and for what purposes; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Raison

The total level is £113 million, of which about £53 million has so far been spent. This has been paying for land resettlement, the training of Zimbabweans, reconstruction in the rural areas, British manpower and equipment needed for development, and electrification of the railways.
